responsibility and accountability. dook at the e.u. -- look at the e.u. did the e.u. destroy greece or did greece destroy the e.u.? it's probably both. but they both blame each other. all of this arises from intergovernmental corporation and commandeering. they have the example of commandeering in front of them. and we'll see the article of confederation and they wrote the constitution that prohibits this and makes it very, very difficult. the second objection to justice briar or the objection to the second part, well, if the feds wants to send a swarm of officers, let them try as language la already suggested they can't and they won't. and if they do they will have to pay the fiscal and the political price. so i think in a weird way it would actually be great if we have f.b.i. agents and in santa clara breaking down the doors of gravely ill pot smokers that will tell people more than the cato institute. one last point about this and i'll end. you see the force of the anti-commandeering rule and something that justin mentioned and that is the affordable care act. this seems far removed but it isn

there was we should undertake serious discussions between the u.s. and the e.u. at the same time, i think we need to be realistic. i resent the ohio over 10 years ago and i think there were unnecessarily optimistic views about how quickly it could be done and how uncomplicated it was and it turned out that caution was the better part of judgment. the e.u. has immense regulatory issues and they think they would have to be willing, essentially, to open up their markets and not use various procedures to try to safeguard their market. so i favor proceeding, but with an understanding that there are immense issues to be looked at. and it's not going to have been very, very quickly. but i'm in favor of starting it.

in brussels, the e.u. expressed its solidarity with mali and support for france's action. >> there were a number of countries who made it very clear to france they would be willing to help and support france in every way and did not rule in or rule out any aspect of that including military support. >> the conflict in northern mali has displaced hundreds of thousands of people in the last year. many more have left their homes since the french offensive begun. occupation in the military offensive in mali continue to increase and the humanitarian situation in the country dwindled. they now say they rescued two million to deal with the crisis, one bound to get worse as the military offensive gets underway. al jazeera, mali. >> the u.s. has formally recognized somalia's government after 20 years. somali president said made the announcement alongside secretary of state hillary clinton in washington. >> somalia is part of the commission on the community and part of the world. somali and the united states are a model for democracy of the freedom of people, of the development of the human and th
